We review the new single from Curse of Lono – Think I’m Alright Now
In the latest of their sweet yet sour tunes, London’s Curse of Lono have dropped new single ‘Think I’m Alright Now’ – the sophomore release from upcoming album ‘People In Cars’.
Following on from July’s ‘Let Your Love Rain Down On Me’, in this new track singer-songwriter Felix Bechtolsheimer reflects on an incredibly difficult personal period -clouded with loss and grief – against the backdrop of a global pandemic.
“I lost my dad, my uncle and my ex-partner last year, and my band, but I’ve got this record and I almost look at it like a bit of a shrine.” Bechtolsheimer explains. ‘Think I’m Alright Now’ showcases the moments where a few glimmers of hope begin to burn through the dark clouds.
Running at almost 4-and-a-half-minutes, the track blends laid-back percussion, jangly guitars and soft-country rock melodies to create an immersive cinematic soundscape.
Along with warm and mellow harmones – Bechtolshiemer’s echoey commanding vocals tell of attempting to overcome challenges in life.
“I’ve been shaken / But I think I’m alright now”
Amidst the pain and adversity – there’s a real sense of resilience in this track, of dusting yourself off and trying your best.
With poignant lyrics and a moreish bluesy sound – this latest release gives us another taste of what’s to come from Curse of Lono when their third studio album is served up next month.
